For weeks, it’s been predicted that the Warriors would draft a wing player. Tonight, they had their pick between Melvin Frazier, De’Anthony Melton, Khyri Thomas and others. They went with Evans.

The pros and cons of Jacob Evans
Evans can shoot it — 37% from three. He is also a fantastic defender. Evans is 6-foot-5 with a long wingspan who will be able to switch on defense, a staple of the Warriors style. He’s allegedly a mature, hardworking player who will fit right into the Warriors team.
Evans doesn’t jump out of the gym and isn’t a great ball handler. Given the Warriors’ style of play, they didn’t need to draft a strong dribbler. Shoot. Score. Guard. Switch. Repeat.
I like the pick — but what do you think of the Warriors’ selection of Jacob Evans? Vote in the poll below and describe your feelings in the comments.

Too soon to say
I stand against the artificial construct of grading the ability of others on principle.
